But some horror movies opt for a different approach where it’s horror of the mind, slowly peeling away at your psyche as you watch it, such as on this week’s episode of Talkin’ Tuong. So join Tuong and Castle Rockettes’s Spencer Dunn as they take a look at the bright and disturbing Swedish folk horror/cultish nightmare that is 2019’s Midsommar.

Ep 77 – Paddington 1 & 2 with Sarah MacDonald

“If we’re kind and polite everything will be right.”

Children’s stories don’t always translate well to the big screen and when they do, sometimes it’s painfully clear they are made ‘just for kids’. It takes a special type of movie magic to make a film that is good for the entire family, and there is no better example than the movies we have for today’s episode of Talkin’ Tuong! This week join Tuong and Mother of Marmalade Sarah MacDonald as they do a double feature of the most lovable bear with a dapper red hat, and blue coat and see why these are the most well reviewed movies of all time – Paddington 1 & 2!
